John Levin started the topic Query: British Army archives relating to Cologne Dada? in the discussion dada on Humanities Commons 1 year, 9 months ago
Post-World War One, the British occupied Cologne, where Ernst and fellow dadaists run afoul of their censorship. At the very least, the British banned both Baargeld’s 1919 magazine Der Ventilator, and the catalogue for the Bulletin D exhibition. However, I have not found any British military archives holding documents relating to either the…[Read more]

Jennifer Buckley started the topic Dada Futures symposium 16-17 Feb 2018 (University of Iowa) in the discussion dada on Humanities Commons 2 years, 2 months ago
The 1978 University of Iowa symposium on Dada was the first major conference on the subject to be held in North America, and the first anywhere to integrate literature and the performing arts in the study of a movement then associated almost exclusively with the visual arts. The conference introduced new interdisciplinary methods and advanced the…[Read more]
CFP for submissions to Dada/Surrealism special issue on Dada, War and Peace.
The origin of the Dada movement is inextricably linked to the history of World War I and to the reaction of artists and writers to the unprecedented carnage of that war. The participants in the Cabaret Voltaire were almost all citizens of countries that were engaged in…[Read more]
